Michigan recognizes Health Care Proxies but there is no law in Michigan governing Living Wills and there is no standard Living Will form for Michigan. You can create your own or use the one included in the Advance Directive packet below. Again, this is not legally valid but it can guide your Health Care Proxy and your physicians about the types of choices you would make.

Required Information for Naming a Health Care Proxy: You and two (2) witnesses must sign your MI Health Care Proxy form for it to be considered valid.
Required Information for Living Will: Even though the included Living Will may not be recognized legally, we recommend signing it and having two (2) witnesses sign it as well.
